Innogy contains all the Renewable, Network and Retail operations of German utility RWE. The IPO of innogy took place in October 2016, after which innogy is owned 77% by RWE. Despite the ownership percentage RWE does not control innogy and treats it as a financial asset. Following its IPO innogy has a market cap (Aug 17) of €20.9 bn making it around the same size as E.ON by market capitalisation. Innogy is an inherently low risk business with the majority of its EBITDA derived from Network and Renewable activities. On a 1H17LTM basis, and excluding other/consolidation, some 63% of EBITDA came from Network activities and 14% from Renewables. Innogy's most significant area of operation in Germany, but it also has grid operations in Eastern Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary) and retail supply activities in the UK, Netherland/Belgium and Eastern Europe with a combined customer base of about 23 million. In the Renewable business innogy has onshore and offshore wind and is the number 3 operator of offshore wind in the world. Its portfolio is mostly Europe based but it is looking at opportunities in the US North East and in Canada. (16 Aug 2017)
